This recipe was posted by The New Mrs. G (currently known as Leelu) on the CooknChat message board back in 2004. She cooked it and reviewed it on the radio show she co-hosted, and she reported that it was the favorite of 3 cakes she made that day.

My modifications are in square brackets [ ]. We enjoyed it a lot. My DS suggests that the cake layer be smaller and the chocolate layer be larger.
